Sketches from Murrayfield as Scotland take on Italy

RBS_ScotHalfTime

On Saturday I was lucky enough to sketch at Murrayfield Stadium, home of Scottish rugby as Scotland took on Italy in the RBS Six Nations. These are my sketches from what was a fantastic spectacle, albeit with a disappointing scoreline.

 

Leading until the final seconds Scotland made the best start with an excellent try securing a 10-0 lead but the Italians came back stron causing the score at half time, as you can see from the sketch above to be 16-15.

 

With a record breaking crowd of over 60,000 filling the stadium the atmosphere was electric but unfortunately most went home dissapointed. The second half became a case of hanging on for the Scots and as the clocked ticked down Italy took the lead.  Click the images below for larger versions.

As the rain came down over Murrayfield the supporters spilled out into the streets, my final sketch below seeing three Scotland fans on the walk home.
